Sunday, July 16th, 2017 8:00 AMHeart & Sole 5K Run/Walk to honor Francesca Carlow, Francesca Carlow truly knows about the 'nuts and bolts" of business on Long Island. The Carlow family owned and operated TRIO Hardware in Plainview for over 50 years. Francesca became involved in the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce to help rebuild its dwindling membership. As president, from 2003 to 2010, she helped build it into an effective and successful business organization. After having been an active NCCC Board member for the past 10 years, Francesca Carlow is honored to now be the President of the Nassau Council of Chambers of Commerce. The NCCC is the umbrella organization for 49 Chambers of Commerce across Nassau County. Francesca has the experience and passion to address issues facing over 6000 businesses throughout Nassau County. Nassau County depends on the success of the small business community. Local businesses are the economic engine and the backbone of Nassau County's economy. As community leaders, chambers work industriously to keep our hard-earned dollars in our local economy. In addition to promoting the SHOP LOCAL campaign, the NCCC supports mixed use and downtown revitalization, keeping elected officials involved and accountable, addressing the rising school and property tax burden, and keeping our families and the next generation here on Long Island.
